Our prints are issued in specific sizes. These are (width x height):
– 30 x 40cm;
– 45 x 60cm; and
– 60 x 80cm.
An edition is the number of prints that will be made of the original illustration, in a particular size.
Once a limited edition has been sold out, then no more prints of that fashion illustration will be made in that size.
Our prints are generally issued in limited editions of 10, 20 or 30, depending on the illustration and the print size. Each print is numbered by Sjoukje (by hand, on the front) , e.g. 1 / 10, 2 / 10, 3 / 10….up to 10 / 10.
Each edition also has a single Artist’s Proof (A/P) print created, which is kept in Sjoukje Bierma’s personal archives. For example, Yellow Face is issued in 3 formats & editions:
– 60 x 80cm, 10 editions + 1 A/P
– 45 x 60cm, 20 editions + 1 A/P
– 30 x 40cm, 30 editions + 1 A/P
